damnewtonQuarterback
1 Cam Newton, Carolina at Atlanta …Cam gets to get right against a defense allowing 433 yards per game (3rd-worst in the NFL)
2 Drew Brees, New Orleans at San Diego …At 354 yards per game this season — a pace for 5,664 — Brees should be on point making a rare return to San Diego, and the Saints desperate for a Win at 0-3
3 Andrew Luck, Indianapolis at Jacksonville
4 Matthew Stafford, Detroit at Chicago
5 Kirk Cousins, Washington vs. Cleveland …Stay the course with Cousins and he is due for a multi-score game and at home versus Cleveland should be it (Cousins is actually 2nd in the NFL at 330 yards per game)
6 Philip Rivers, San Diego vs. New Orleans
7 Blake Bortles, Jacksonville vs. Indianapolis …Bortles should break out some against a defense allowing 31.7 points per game
8 Carson Palmer, Arizona vs. Los Angeles …Back at home and off an ugly 4-INT game, Palmer should be a candidate to rebound this week to shake off the frustration
9 Matt Ryan, Atlanta vs. Carolina
10 Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh vs. Kansas City
11 Joe Flacco, Baltimore vs. Oakland …Oakland is allowing an NFL-worst 476 total yards per game
12 Trevor Siemian, Denver at Tampa Bay …Siemian’s stock has to soar (either for real or as an over-reaction after a 4-TD, 312-yard game on the road at Cincinnati), while Tampa allows an NFL-worst 33.7 points per game
13 Ryan Tannehill, Miami at Cincinnati
14 Dak Prescott, Dallas at San Francisco
15 Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay vs. Denver
16 Derek Carr, Oakland at Baltimore …Sliding Carr down some as this week he draws the 2nd-most difficult passing defense at 168.3 yards per game
17 Brian Hoyer, Chicago vs. Detroit …Hoyer can be a gamer, and he filled in last week with 300+ yards and two touchdowns, while Detroit is tied with an NFL-worst 10 passing touchdowns allowed this year
18 Brock Osweiler, Houston vs. Tennessee
19 Andy Dalton, Cincinnati vs. Miami …Can Dalton stop disappointing — he comes off a 206-yard game and Dalton has just two touchdowns on the season
20 Alex Smith, Kansas City at Pittsburgh …Smith could be a serviceable plug this week against a defense allowing a 2nd-worst 332 passing yards per game
21 Russell Wilson, Seattle at N.Y. Jets …Wilson (sprained knee) is expected to make the Week 4 start; UPDATE: Wilson has been removed from the Seahawks’ injury report
22 Eli Manning, N.Y. Giants at Minnesota …After the eight-game sack beat-down on Cam Newton, the Minnesota defense would need to be feared some
23 Sam Bradford, Minnesota vs. N.Y. Giants
24 Marcus Mariota, Tennessee at Houston
25 Jimmy Garoppolo, New England vs. Buffalo …UPDATE: This ranking assumes Garoppolo is the starter (and it’s still not determined who the Patriots will start in Week 4)
26 Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo at New England
27 Ryan Fitzpatrick, N.Y. Jets vs. Seattle
28 Jacoby Brissett, New England vs. Buffalo …UPDATE: This ranking assumes Brissett is the starter (and it’s still not determined who the Patriots will start in Week 4)
29 Blaine Gabbert, San Francisco vs. Dallas
30 Cody Kessler, Cleveland at Washington
31 Case Keenum, Los Angeles at Arizona

4 Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas at San Francisco
5 DeMarco Murray, Tennessee at Houston
6 Carlos Hyde, San Francisco vs. Dallas
7 Lamar Miller, Houston vs. Tennessee
8 Jordan Howard, Chicago vs. Detroit …Howard is set to get the Week 4 start and should be extremely busy
9 Mark Ingram, New Orleans at San Diego
10 LeGarrette Blount, New England vs. Buffalo …Blount has been heavily-used with Tom Brady out, and Blount has been on a terror with 4 TDs through three games and on pace for an NFL-best 1,589 rushing yards
11 Theo Riddick, Detroit at Chicago
12 Todd Gurley, Los Angeles at Arizona
13 C.J. Anderson, Denver at Tampa Bay
14 LeSean McCoy, Buffalo at New England
15 Jeremy Hill, Cincinnati vs. Miami …Hill should keep off his momentum against a Miami defense that allows 147.3 on the ground (2nd-worst)

25 Matt Forte, N.Y. Jets vs. Seattle
26 Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati vs. Miami
27 Jerick McKinnon, Minnesota vs. N.Y. Giants
28 Dwayne Washington, Detroit at Chicago …Washington is a sneaky sleeper on a good offense, the Lions want to get him more involved and Chicago ranks 30th against the run at 142.7 yards per game
29 Duke Johnson Jr., Cleveland at Washington
30 Latavius Murray, Oakland at Baltimore
31 T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville vs. Indianapolis
32 Derrick Henry, Tennessee at Houston

37 Justin Forsett, Baltimore vs. Oakland
38 Fozzy Whittaker, Carolina at Atlanta
39 Devontae Booker, Denver at Tampa Bay

41 DeAngelo Williams, Pittsburgh vs. Kansas City
42 Kenyan Drake, Miami at Cincinnati …Most likely, Arian Foster (groin) won’t play this week either, especially in a short week on Thursday Night Football — note that the Bengals haven’t allowed a rushing touchdown this season
